A Commentary On The Psalms From Primitive and Mediæval Writers Volumes 1 To 4 by Rev. J.M. Neale D.D.

ARG. THOMAS. That CHRIST alone worketh great marvels. The Voice of CHRIST to the FATHER.

VEN. BEDE. Asaph denotes the congregation of the good. Idithun, the leaper over secular things; the end, that of them who advance in CHRIST. All this Psalm is sung by the faithful congregation which, leaping over the sins of this world with glorious steps, comes to that end; nought like which can be found. But it should be known that in the Hebrew it is By Jeduthun, not For Jeduthun, that it may signify that the Psalm, was not sung for him, but by him, and that which follows, A Psalm of Asaph, is not found in the true copies. This Asaph, whom we have said to be the leaper over sins, in the first statement of the Psalm testifies that he cried unto the LORD, and that he was taught by his troubles. I cried unto the Lord with my voice. In the second place, he counts up the thoughts which throb in hearts labouring in this world. Thou holdest mine eyes waking. In the third part he alleges that by the Divine goodness he was changed to a better tone of thought, so as to ponder steadfastly on the works and power of GOD, by constant attention to which things it is known that he profited. And I said. Fourthly; he proceeds to tell how divine wonders were wrought among the people by the LORD the SAVIOUR. The waters saw Thee, O God.

SYRIAC PSALTER. Of Asaph, concerning the longsuffering and wonders of GOD, and how David overcame the LORD’S enemies.
